The Manufacturing Outlook

3d Systems Corporation : Redefining Manufacturing With 3d Printing

Top 10 Additive Manufacturing Solution Companies - 2021

Even though COVID-19 had an undoubtedly short-term negative impact on the growth rate of the 3D printing market, the market is expected to recover quickly in the coming years. This optimism is also backed by multiple recent surveys that conclude that, as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, 33 percent of engineering businesses increased their 3D printing usage while 50 percent of engineering businesses maintained their usage.

This renewed fervor around 3D printing or additive manufacturing (AM) is now leading businesses to focus on more aspects than just R&D, testing, and prototyping. They are realizing that AM can act as a silver bullet for overseas supply chain issues as well. Problems like the long lead time for machined and injection molded parts can be mitigated through the adoption of AM. And this is now pushing many organizations either to develop AM capabilities in-house or outsource to a local 3D printing company or service bureaus.

To help such organizations, we have compiled this issue of Manufacturing Outlook to help you in the task of finding the best additive manufacturing solution providers and service companies. It is elaborately crafted to assist you in fostering productive partnerships and improving performance. In this edition, we have listed the top additive manufacturing solution providers and service companies to highlight those making significant contributions to the manufacturing sector. This edition also blends thought leadership articles from subject matter experts and CXOs. We hope this issue of Manufacturing Outlook helps you build the partnership you and your organization need to foster a manufacturing ecosystem driven by robust and efficient technology.

We present to you Manufacturing Outlook’s, “Top 10 Additive Manufacturing Solution Providers – 2021,”
